Hot Chicks, Comedy and Poker! Playboy TV Presents Sam's Game!

Posted at 13:58 2009-05-22
Well known Simpsons co-creator and High Stakes Poker regular Sam Simon has partnered with Playboy TV for a unique and laugh-filled new series that combines the fun of a neighbourhood poker game with the laughs of the biggest names in comedy.  Set at The Palms Casino Resort in down town Las Vegas, Sam’s Game is a mix of awesome poker action, intense comedy and the hottest bunnies that the playboy stables have to offer.  The all new original series Sam’s Game premieres on Playboy TV Thursday, June 11th, at 9:00pm, ET/PT.
 
It is well known that Sam Simon is a philanthropist; despite this Sam did not develop the series as a celebrity poker game for charity.  Sam, who is no slouch at the poker table with five WSOP cashes under his belt, has gotten all of his friends who play in the game to put up their own money! Simon will host the show and bring with him an army of well know comedians and celebrities such as Dave Attell, Artie Lange, Norm Macdonald, Jeff Ross, and Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly. Professional poker champs Jennifer Leigh and Phil Laak, television writer and producer Jay Kogen (Frasier and Malcolm in the Middle), and radio personalityRalph Cirella are also part of the line up.  Adding to the fun are 2001 Playmate of the Year, Brande Roderick (NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice) and Playboy Playmates Deanna Brooks, Stacy Fuson and Playboy Radio’s Andrea Lowell.
 
“People have always told me that my home poker game is so much fun that it should be a television show, and when Playboy TV called me to actually turn it into one, I jumped at the chance,” said Simon. “Sam’s Game works, because, unlike other celebrity poker shows, most of us have known and played against each other for years.  The stakes aren’t the biggest, the players aren’t the best, but the game is definitely the funniest!”
 
Sam’s Game is just one of many new shows that Playboy TV are using to expand the definition of premium entertainment for adults – building upon a new slate of original programming launching this year including game shows, lifestyle magazine formats, reality series and competition shows.  The channel’s new line-up is anchored by its popular reality television titles and is being supported by the national “A Better Reality Awaits” campaign – a witty campaign that parodies the bland and often boring reality shows on other channels and offers viewers an exciting look at the uncensored world of reality television on Playboy TV.
 
“Sam’s Game is not what viewers might expect from Playboy TV,” admits Todd Schwartz, vice president, programming, Playboy TV.  “We hope to continue to surprise and delight viewers with the unexpected, while remaining thoroughly entertaining. Discerning viewers will appreciate the candid, free-flowing conversation around Sam’s poker table and will find it a very natural fit on our premium channel for adults.  Sam’s Game brings a fresh look to ‘television poker’ with the spirit and excitement of the Playboy brand.”
 
Schwartz added that partnering with Simon was “a privilege for the Playboy TV because as we expand the Playboy TV brand we want to partner with the most creative and well-respected names in television.”  Similarly, Playboy magazine has a long history of featuring articles and editorials authored by some of the world’s leading personalities.
 
So hot chicks, funny guys and poker! The show promised to be a winner! There are already free sample videos available on www.playboytv.com right now. What better excuse do you need to go and check out the world’s premier adult entertainment website!
